The Vocal Production Recording Kit from B&H is designed to provide a convenient and high-quality method for recording vocals (singing or speaking) to your computer in a project studio, home setup, or mobile rig. Use it with your computer and headphones to record vocals for songs, podcasts, tutorials, voice-overs, and more. The kit includes a Polsen PCR-65 condenser microphone, Behringer U-PHORIA UMC22 USB audio interface, Auray RF-CPB-18 reflection filter, Auray MS-5230 mic stand, and Pearstone 10’ XLR cable.

The Polsen PCR-65 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic provides full-range frequency reproduction and a high maximum SPL. Connect it via the supplied 10’ XLR mic cable to the Midas-designed preamp on the 2-channel Behringer UMC22 audio interface, which provides audio routing to and from your DAW at up to 48 kHz.

Mount the vibration-minimizing shockmount to the desktop tripod stand for convenient placement in podcasting or interviews. For increased acoustical control, use the Auray RF-CPB-18 curved reflection filter on the Auray MS-5230 telescoping tripod mic stand.

Polsen PCR-65 Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The PCR-65 from Polsen is a cardioid condenser microphone designed for full-range reproduction of vocals and instruments in podcasts, recording studios, and broadcast environments. Its side-address, pressure-gradient design utilizes a large 1" diaphragm with a cardioid polar pattern, which minimizes the pickup of off-axis sounds and impedes feedback. The microphone boasts a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, allowing it to accurately transduce the frequencies of a variety of sounds. Its high sensitivity and 125 dB maximum SPL ensure that you can use it on quiet or loud sources, from whispered vocals to pounding drums.

The PCR-65 has a sturdy, metal housing with an alloy finish. The supplied custom shockmount decouples the mic from vibrations and rumble that would otherwise transfer from the floor to the mic. Use the desktop tripod stand for convenient tabletop placement during interviews and podcasts. Phantom power (12 to 52 VDC) is required.

Cardioid Capsule

The 1" capsule's cardioid polar pattern is least sensitive to sound behind the microphone, allowing better rejection of room reflections, which is ideal for capturing vocals and close-miked instruments with greater clarity

Full-Range Frequency Response

The 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response is sufficiently wide to deliver a warm, natural sound for a variety of sources, from the low drone of a double bass to the high shimmer of cymbals to the powerful presence of a vocal

High Sensitivity and Maximum SPL

The microphone's high sensitivity allows it to be used on quiet sources such as a soft voice, without extreme gain, and its high maximum SPL of 125 dB ensures that it can handle loud sounds such as a drum, without distortion

Sturdy and Durable

Metal construction with an alloy finish enables the mic to hold up to the demands of studio and stage environments

Versatile

The supplied shockmount, which decreases pickup of rumble and vibrations, can be mounted on a standard mic stand or the included desktop tripod

Auray RF-CPB-18 Reflection Filter (Plastic)

Designed to help create clean vocal recordings in less-than-ideal recording environments, the plastic RF-CPB-18 Reflection Filter from Auray absorbs and diffuses external noise and room reflections. It can be used in any recording scenario that requires microphone isolation, such as tracking in an acoustically untreated room, untreated rehearsal spaces, project and home studios, and professional studios where additional isolation is needed.

The filter features high-density, open-cell acoustic foam wrapped in an ABS plastic curved screen. Its front sliding bracket and rear adjustment rail easily allows you to adjust its height and depth for precise microphone placement. Thanks to its standard 5/8"-27 threaded adapters, the RF-CPB-18 is compatible with most microphone stands, clips, and shockmounts. It is also ideal for desktop recording and broadcast applications when used with a desktop mic stand that features a weighted metal base (not included). The lightweight, 3-pound body lends to portability while its ABS construction assures its durability.
